American electronic dance music fans, promoters, and DJs just felt the sharp end of Sacha Baron Cohen’s trolling stick in his new series Who Is America?, Billboard reports.

Meeting with a local DJ manager, Jake “Inphamous” Hermelo, Cohen posed as a British ex-convict who goes by the name DJ Solitary. He arrived equipped with a fake backstory and track, which was secretly produced by TNGHT’s Hudson Mohawke.

The track, to summarize, is awful — it’s filled with samples of toilet flushes, vomiting, and stabbing. Hermelo, however, dubs it a “masterpiece.” It’s pretty cringe. Watch below.

Of course, Hermelo and America’s EDM scene aren’t the only ones to have been shamed on Cohen’s new new show. Previous episodes have seen pro-gun activists biting dildos, Joe Arpaio talking golden showers, Roy Moore scanned with a “pedophile detector,” politicians citing Cardi B as a reason to arm kids, and many other face-palm inducing antics.
